About Me

Skiing at Yongpyong Resort, Korea

I am a 28-year-old Canadian ex-pat hailing from Toronto but currently residing in Seoul, South Korea.  I work at a women’s university as an ESL instructor, but my preferred profession would be paid world traveller.  I am always looking for beautiful places to visit and new adventures to have.  My interests include – but are not limited to – rock climbing, diving, hiking, skiing, cave exploring, and paragliding.  I have travelled to over thirty countries, and I hope to continue travelling to amazing places over the next few years – or decades!

This blog was set up as a way to archive my travel stories and photos, but I hope some of you will also find it useful for your trip preparations.  Please keep in mind, though, that my stories are mostly anecdotal, and that your experience might be quite different from my own.  I don’t pretend to be a historical expert or a professional tour guide, and most of these posts will likely be about my  personal experiences in the places I have visited.  I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to share your stories with me!

  1. Christine!!!! Wow it sure has been awhile, Jenelle found this site and sent it to me! I am super jealous but sooooo happy for you, looks like you found your niche. Hope to be in touch xox

  2. Hi Christine!

    Let me start off by saying that (sucking up aside of course…) your blog is amazing. The adventures you embark on and the lessons learned are similar to the dreams i have about what i wish to do with my own life in the very near future. I am being wholeheartedly honest when I say that you are really an inspiration to me. I’m sure every traveler has had these thoughts somewhere along the line but as college graduation approaches I’m stuck between doing what i want and do whats right…(for the moment of course, its not like ill go steal dollar bills from an unexpecting child or anything; to go or not to go that is the question)

    As someone who majors in International Studies, studied abroad in South Korea and desires to advocate for reunification i am currently, applying for an internship position in PSCORE’s Seoul office which I read you have experience in! Pleaaaaassssseeeee correct me if I’m wrong BUT I’m going to assume your not the organization’s PR agent or anything and I’m not a blogger/journalist or whatever (scouts honor! ….X my <3) however i do want to ask: did you like it?? Was the experience what you thought it was going to be?? What was it like?????

    A response would be much appreciated! For insight into a place i really want to intern/work for, Christine, you are my only hope!


    Warm Regards,

  3. Christine, I want to say you made me choke on my breakfast b/c I was laughing so hard! I love the wet tissue lilies popping-up on the dinner table and the chicken “blood bath.”

    To make myself feel better, I’m off to read your Shaolin Saga. 🙂
